Roundabout paving in effect until Wednesday

Crews will be placing asphalt pavement through Wednesday, Sept. 28.

The asphalt paving will be completed using both daytime and nighttime paving operations and will require various lane closures and detours (which will be signed).

Traffic impacts during peak traffic hours will be kept to a minimum.

The paving will be done on Mel Ray Road, US 6, Gilstrap Court and all I-70 ramps that connect into the new roundabouts.

All other paving operations will be completed by detouring traffic through the project site with the use of construction signing and flaggers.

The Interstate 70/Exit 114 improvements project is approximately 80 percent complete.

Following the paving, construction activities that remain include completing the median islands, permanent signing and striping, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping of the roundabouts.

For the duration of the project, which is anticipated to be completed by November, traffic will be in its final configuration with minimal impacts needed to complete the remaining work items.

Hours of work will be daylight hours with occasional night work if necessary, Monday through Friday, and some weekends if necessary.

The speed limit through the construction zones will be reduced to 25 mph.
